Distorted Hollywood drum sound? Simulate sordino strings?
Does anyone have any ideas on how to simulate orchestral sordino strings if I only have the regular sustain sound? Is it just EQ? If so, which frequencies should I boost/cut? Is it different for each section (violin, viola, cello, bass)? How convincing is it?
Thanks in advance.

The easiest thing to do is to just try it yourself. But the first thing that comes to mind is lowering the high mid frequenzies. It could be hard to get a realistic sound but it's worth a try.
That drum sound isn't really distorted but rather "telephonized". There's a filter on it. Use a filter or EQ to remove cut the top and bottom and tweak till you have a similar sound. But of course you need to find samples that'll sound good filtered.
